2023 Budget: Public Health Fund (1025)

The Public Health Fund was established in 2003. Previously, the Health Department was a separate entity – Southwest Washington Health District – governed by a consortium of local municipalities, which included Clark County. By agreement, Southwest Washington Health District was dissolved, and the Health Department was brought under the direct jurisdiction of Clark County. The department aims to preserve, promote, and protect public health in the community. Public Health activities are funded by a variety of sources, including fees for service (e.g. permits, inspections and plan reviews), local, state and federal grants, county Mental Health Sales Tax, and the county general fund.
